Make a Splash With the Best Bath Toys for Infants
With a sea of choices in store aisles, parents often have trouble finding the best bath toys for their babies or toddlers. Make your baby look forward to bath time and inspire your child to use his or her imagination. The best way to tap into those fun make-believe moments is to choose simple, non-electronic bath toys that let your child drive the action.
Imaginative Play at Bath Time
"Play is so important in the social, mental, physical, and emotional development of children," says Vicki Panaccione, PhD, a child psychologist and founder of the Better Parenting Institute.
“Toys that do too much don't allow a child to use her own imagination. Dolls and stuffed animals that talk or sing or direct kids to press certain buttons essentially take charge of the play situation when the child should be the one directing the action. When a toy is too specific, it's limiting and it denies the child the ability to use her imagination," says Panaccione. Choose simple, age-appropriate toys that allow your child to be creative and spontaneous.”
We designed the Oball bath line to be some of the best bath toys for baby. Even the most inexperienced little fingers can easily fit into the geometric holes, so baby can grasp them at an early age. When baby can pick up and grasp toys, play time can become much more fun and engaging. Here are our suggestions for incorporating Oball Bath Toys into baby’s play.
